Confirmed! Maruti To Sell Ciaz Sedan Through The Nexa Dealerships
The Ciaz will be the fifth car to be sold via their premium dealership Nexa
Maruti launched the Ciaz sedan back in 2014 after the Ciaz concept was showcased at the Auto Expo the same year. The mid-size sedan quickly became popular amongst the crowd and also earned the crown of being called a worthy competitor to the popular Honda City. Until now Maruti used to sell the Ciaz through their standard Maruti Suzuki dealerships along with their other products, but there were constant rumours that Maruti will perhaps start selling the Ciaz via their Nexa dealerships when they first inaugurated the dealership in India last year.
Currently, Maruti sells a total of 4 cars via their premium dealership Nexa, which includes the SX4 S-Cross, Baleno, Baleno RS and the Ignis Crossover. We have already reported earlier that Maruti perhaps has plans to sell the Ciaz sedan via their Nexa dealerships with a Nexa kind of badge spotted towards the rear profile of the Ciaz sedan.
Now according to the recent reports, it’s been confirmed that Maruti Suzuki’s flagship sedan offering for the Indian market will be sold through the Nexa dealerships soon. It will also be available in 5 trim levels. While the four trim levels include Sigma, Delta, Zeta and Alpha variants. There will be an additional new trim which will be offered as well in the form of a new S (Sport).
The top end S(Sport) trim will likely get an additional body kit which we saw in the Ciaz RS variant. The S(Sport) will be offered as a top end trim, and it gets all the goodies that one expect in the top end Alpha trim. However, there won’t be any changes made under the hood, and thus the Ciaz will continue with the same 1.3-litre diesel and 1.4-litre petrol engine. Both the engines will be paired to a 5-speed manual transmission as standard while the petrol unit will also get a 4-speed automatic gearbox as well.
